BlackBerry PlayBook Caught on Camera again

15904-playbookHere is a nice picture of the BlackBerry PlayBook being held with one hand via BBnews.pl. One of the things that I see here is that it looks really comfortable holding it with one hand.  When you see people type on the Ipad it looks awkward and it makes me wonder if typing on the PlayBook will be a much better experience. I tried holding  the Ipad with one hand and is not comfortable at all.  We have seen the PlayBook in quite a few videos including a music video by the Blackeyed peas and an unofficial video.  I just wish this device was released for Christmas this would make a great Christmas gift. RIM should had planned it a little bit better and released it for the holidays instead of Next year.

  1. I’ve seen some @BlackBerryBlog twitter posts that might imply an earlier-than-expected release. But I also wonder when the released simulator will include *any* of the stock apps, or they’ll release more SDKs.

  2. I call BS on this alleged Playbook sighting. The “device” is displaying the same time (12:25) and other cards and info that the playbook has on blackberry’s site (http://ca.blackberry.com/playbook-tablet/).

    I think they just took a screenshot of the playbook from a website and glued it onto a picture frame..

  3. Good catch it could be so.

  4. Is it just me or does it look….small 😮

  5. So their site now says the image is fake.

  6. Although this may be a fake, the dimensions that are quoted and with the image of the big boss holding one, one handed holding does seem comfortable. The best of all it seems the dimensions may still allow for the true BlackBerry thumb typing.

  7. What a tease. 😛

  8. Hey luis have you ever heard of proof reading?

    “I tried holding  the Ipad with one hand and is just not comfortable at all.”

    Do you see the typo? It should be its not is.

    Also,
    ” I just wish this device was released for Christmas this would make my Christmas for sure and RIM should had planned it a little bit better and released it for the holidays instead of Next year.”

    How is this a sentence format? You should’ve used a (,) between Christmas and this. Also another typo I saw in that long sentence is “RIM should had” should be RIM should’ve. Go back to school and learn English. For a blogger and a mod I would expect better from you! Heck I’m latino as well, but I guess me being in university and doing a double major has nothing to do with how bad your grammar is! That’s all and good night.

    • Thank you for noticing that.

    • Sometimes, even if you do proof read, neither yourself nor a computer program will catch all mistakes. A simple, “Hey, change this sentence so it makes more sense” comment would be more appropriate instead of looking like an up tight student. I think your comment was longer than the actual post 😉

      Ironically, you actually had typos in your comments about fixing a typo.

      1. “It should be its not is.”

      Do you see your typo? It should be “it’s” and not “its.” One is a contraction and one is a possessive pronoun. I’ll leave it up to you to figure it out.

      2. “Hey luis have you ever heard of proof reading?”

      It should be “Hey(comma) Luis(comma) have you ever heard of proof reading?” See? I can pick apart your comments, too, and believe me, there are plenty at which to poke, but it’s just not any fun.

      And, by the way, what does being Latino have anything to do with having bad grammar? Obviously, having a double major doesn’t account for presenting oneself as a tactless douchebag. Take a deep breath and count to 10 the next time that you feel like being a grammar Nazi.

      P.S. No one cares that you have a double major. Go brag on 4chan.

  9. Well I’m glad you changed one thing in the article. Anyways next time just read the article to yourself and see if it makes any sense. Trust me I still make a lot of mistakes, but that’s because I was in french immersion all my life. But like I said before I didn’t mean to come across harshly. I just expect the same quality of an article that Ronen would write.

  10. Alex from RIM here. Glad to hear you’re looking forward to the PlayBook as much as we are! You’re exactly right about how comfortable the playbook is to hold. Having been playing with it for a while, I can attest that it’s very comfortable in your hand both vertically or horizontally (and not too heavy!). What’s really cool is that the size allows you to type with two thumbs ‘BlackBerry-style’, so BlackBerry users will feel right at home. Keep an eye out, there is a lot more about the PlayBook to discuss!
